Long snapper talks offers
"I received an offer today from Tennessee," said Reid Ferguson. "It was real exciting. I had a call today with coach Dooley, my parents and my head coach. Coach Dooley offered me over the phone.
"Coach Dooley stressed his need for a long snapper. I know how much he focuses on special teams. It's something very important to me in my decision making for college.
"We talked about my visit in two weeks. I am going up there for the camp. I am going to get some good work in and start learning the schemes."
Ferguson has taken several visits to Knoxville and has a comfort level with the Volunteers.
"I think Tennessee is a great school," he said. "I have been up there on quite a few visits. I have got to know the special teams coach [Eric Russell]. I have enjoyed him and the rest of the coaching staff. I look forward' to getting up there for the camp."
The Buford star landed his first offer three weeks ago from San Diego State. He scored his first SEC offer Wednesday from LSU.
"I got an offer from LSU yesterday," said Ferguson. "The LSU offer was very exciting. It's always good to get an offer from a college. I have visited LSU multiple times. Every visit has been well. They make you feel at home, and I feel like I fit in at both LSU and Tennessee. I am going to LSU's camp next Friday on June 4.
"I like the coaching staff at LSU. They just got a special teams coach from the New York Giants. We made a good connection. Coach Miles and I have a good relationship. I have good relationship with the long snapper, Joey Crappell. I feel like I could fit in there as well as Tennessee."
Ferguson will travel to Baton Rouge and Knoxville this summer, but a few other schools he will check out as well.
"I don't really have any favorites right now," he said. "I am gong to take trips this summer. I am going to Alabama's camp on June 11. I will visit South Florida, Florida State and North Carolina. Alabama, South Florida, North Carolina, Florida State and Georgia have all shown interest. I plan on making a decision before the start of the season."
